I’m a little late on this one…but Erika Dreifus passed along information about a new Jewish-themed writing website, that might be of use to many of you!

The website is called Scribblers on the Roof:

[The idea was] born out of a need for a dedicated place for both established and emerging writers of fiction and poetry with Jewish themes to submit their work. While there are some wonderful Jewish publications that have small sections for for creative writing they are few and far between and they are not dedicated solely to the craft of poetry and prose.

The site launched this week and looks great!

Submissions should be sent to submissions(at) or send your thoughts, views, ideas to editor(at)jscribes(dot)com.
